worked with the fiscal cliff fractured the republicans. who was in charge of the last vote? nancy pelosi, the democrats. she got 9 out of 10 to go with her. a few republicans. she controlled the agenda. that's his strategy. >> bill: it's working. and i don't know whether it's going to work down the road but he has two huge things going for him. the media behind him, all right. so think are going to support what he does generally speaking on the networks news level in the major urban newspapers and wire services like the associated press. he has got all of that favorable push. then he has got a lack of anybody in the republican party who can stand up to him. eye to eye, man to man, and say you are ruining the country, mr. president. it's the leadership, look, you might like john boehner, most americans don't know who he is. all right? marco rubio will be on this program tomorrow. a rising star. but doesn't have nearly the status of president obama or the bully pulpit and the press certainly not going to give rubio a break. everything is going the pet's way. i think that's how he feels. th
leader harry reid and house democratic leader nancy pelosi. [ cheers and applause ] ♪ >> and, of course, here's the president being led by the house sergeant at arms, paul irving, and followed by the senior senator from new york, charles schumer, who will be master of ceremonies leading up to the president's inauguration. the president passing through the part of the capitol known as the crypt and preparing to be announced at the west front of the capitol. >> members of the republican leadership behind the president as he is being led to the entrance to the west front. john boehner, the speaker of the house, four years ago in 2009 was merely the house minority leader, now the leader of republicans in the house of representatives. there is the crowd on the national mall, the vice president. in the foreground, members of the supreme court. >> i guess there's no standard hat for the supreme court members. justice scalia has that kind of large beret kind of thing, and then justice breyer right beside him, something like a bellhop's hat, isn't it? i mean, how do you -- >> many descriptions o
was on the police officer of the u.s. house this morning. with former speaker nancy pelosi and many others, and the second amendment is part of that, as is the first amendment to speak about what we would like to do and readdress agreements. look at what the president provides. it's troubling to me that the president says if congress doesn't do what i want, i'm iffing to issue an executive order. you know, the power to make laws starts in the house and senate, and that's where we'll take a look at this, but, again, many my district and in many others overwhelmingly people in kansas are not looking for new laws out of washington. they're looking for more involvement in their communities and their families, at the state level rather than the washingtonian law. >> new york state is taking action today. the toughest gun laws in the country. again, if things are not done at the federal level, guns move across state borders very, very easily. doesn't there need to be some federal law? >> there are obviously plenty of laws, and that's one concern i do have is the failure to enforce current laws.
him. de facto nancy pelosi is the speaker of the house rns and steny huher is the majority leader. >> you say that because. >> because we've had two major legislative initiatives in this, important ones, one to avoid the fiscal cliff, and plummeting off. and left to their own votes, the republicans rejected it. it was passed only because the democrats. and then after that, we had the vote on hurricane sandy. and the people of new york and new jersey and new england who were devastated by it to get the same kind of treatment that the people who suffered from cat in-- katrina did. left to republican votes and john boehner's best efforts have failed in the house of representatives. democrats passed it. both cases, democrats were the key. >> i thinks that-- these are exceptional cases. in the years ahead the republicans discover they can't govern controlling the house. the democrats are going to discover they can't get much done unless they control the house. and i think in general the general pattern is they both lost a lot of -- >> here we are the friday before the secretary inaugur
weeks later, he sits down with nancy pelosi and harry reid, passed 780 billion in stimulus, no one having read the bill and the republicans gut it and the speeches were wrong. the president tomorrow is going to sound right, okay? if he follows through on tomorrow's speech, he has a chance to be eisenhower. i don't think he will. i think he wants to be roosevelt in his second term. but that's neither here nor there. if congressional republicans can reach out on issues, take the case of gun control, i think the house judiciary committee ought to hold hearings in chicago. this is the president's hometown. the mayor is the president's former chief of staff. they have very strict gun control. and they are the murder capital of the united states, 516 dead last year. i think having a hearing on what happened before we rush into the next, you know , panacea, would be a useful exercise on a non-partisan basis. >> this idea and the other idea the speaker talked about about members of the black caucus going into republican district is kind of fascinating. part of the problem we have is the di
it is a mess and we have to fix it. when you hear people like nancy pelosi saying the fiscal cliff was not enough on the revenue side. you hear, you know, many politicians chiming in. howard dean, for example, saying in december that the truth is everybody needs to pay more taxes. we're not going to get out of this deficit problem unless we raise taxes across the board. the rich can't solve the problem. i guess that is where i'm going with this is, it seems like, especially from what you're saying susan, everyone will have to pay more taxes to get out of this. >> i actually don't agree with that point. i don't agree with howard dean either. we're not looking more middle class tax increases. the president has been pretty firm on that. we're looking closing coorate loopholes. some people are starting to talk about high frequent financial transaction tax for people that are trading for less than a minute in a position. melissa: none of that will get us there. >> that could raise $350 billion, if you add that with tax cuts could get 1.2 the president is talking about. there are some me
measure to hit the halls of congress. but house democratic leader nancy pelosi, heading into a hearing on new gun restrictions with philadelphia mayor, michael nutter, said the add crosses a line. >> i thought it was completely inappropriate to involve the president's children. they have protection because of national security and it was really inappropriate. >> do you think the nra made a mistake there? >> it's just a disgrace. >> reporter: other house democrats said the ad amounted to intimidation. >> we're dealing with people who aren't tiserribly stable, so i think that kind of ad, i think, is dangerous. >> reporte >> it was irresponsible, and you know, this is not your grandfather's nra. >> reporter: there was also outrage over at the white house. "most americans agree that a president's children should not be used as pawns in a political fight," said press secretary john carney, "but to go so far as to make the safety of the president's children the subject of an attack ad is repugnant and cowardly." david keene it is not an attack on the president's children. >> we believe the s
: you're right to call it a gimmick, and i've never heard you agree with nancy pelosi. >> tucker: it's a wonderful gimmick, i endorse, why not? why are we paying these people if they're not writing budgets. >> clayton: they can't cash a paycheck unless they do their job. number one, they don't know if it's constitutional, you stop congress getting paid as a result of it. the second part, it could be a gimmick and we'll have to relitigate this in three months ago frustrates american businesses and they don't know what to do. >> alisyn: will the national nightmare ever stop? >> you would think they'd be thinking beyond the next quarter. we just said our debt rating downgraded, right? >> and here is a new fox news channel poll. and the question was, is government spending managed carefully or out of control? hmmm, what do you think people said mostly? >> i would love to know the 11%, who are you. >> alisyn: 83% of people think it's out of control and that obviously is up from two years ago, and up from three years ago, and on and on. >> clayton: really, who are the 11%? please, if you a
